COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A traditional light hop flavour balances the sweet malty caramel taste. The addition of a pinch of roast barley during the brewing process lends a distinctive roast bite which is balanced by a crisp dry medium bitterness.

Sweet malty nose, big off-white head, medium red body. Somewhat sweet with a slightly bitter finish. Nothing special.

Could have predicted that I’d hate this. Red, hopped out the wazoo. Way too strong. Not happy. Not that I could tell you what the flavor was beyond bitter and hoppy. That’s all I got.

Clear brown/red. Thin head and lace. Nose was subdued with earthy malts,slight fruits. Smooth, light body. Palate was a bit watery,some ok malt, faintly hopped finish. No better then killians........

This was an exceptional well-balanced reddish irish ale. It had an efforvescent appearance with a reddish overtone. The flavor was abundant and well pronounced. It had slight hints of caramel, mint, and irish hops. Very drinkable. Try it with some Italian sourdough bread and hot red peppers!

I wouldn’t say it was fruity with a nice coffee finish but it isn’t half bad. Nice sweet light caramel malt taste. But could use a little more kick in my opinion. I’d drink em but wouldn’t go out of my way for it.

This bottle of beer had a nice brown head, with lots of lace. It had a very mild malt smell and taste and seemed to be highly carbonated. I couldn’t taste much at all in this beer, and it was my first beer of the day. Not as strong flavored as I expected, but not bad either.

SJP (483) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2002
Nice dark ruby color and a very malty aroma. semmed a little ightly hopped for my tastes, but a very smooth balance of caramel and malt flavors made up for it nicely. A very good red ale.

Nice malty aroma. Body has hints of malt, caramel, and hops balanced quite nicely. An enjoyable red.
